Rise in exploration and production activities in the oil and gas industry is estimated to drive the barite market in the near future. Barite forms an indispensable component of drilling fluid. It is used in drilling as well as completion process of oil and gas production. Barite elevates the hydrostatic pressure of drilling mud, enabling it to offset the high-pressure zones encountered during drilling. Specific gravity of barite is highly important in the drilling process; hence, drilling grade barite is offered by manufacturers. However, availability of substitutes such as itabirite, celestite, illmenite, and hematite is likely to hamper the barite market. Potential application of barite in various industries is projected to provide immense opportunities to market players in the near future.
